Service and atmosphere were good, but the time it took to get 2 burgers was very very long, especially since the restaurant had less than 50% capacity. Also, although the burgers tasted great,, the amount of grease that gushes out of the burgers could easily fill a 1/2 cup.
burger was so-so. Service was just okay.
Better places to eat not as expensive with better food and servie.
The Briquet Stroganoff was amazing. Beer selection was outstanding with enough variety to please everyone.
Prices can run a little expensive but could still feed a family of 5 under 100 and still get good food.
We just discovered this place. We went here on a whim on a Friday night because they were one of the few places that still had reservations available, and we liked it so much that we cancelled an existing reservation for the following night just so that we could come back! The atmosphere and music are so fun. The food is all delicious; my one complaint would be that there aren't a ton of healthy options, but as long as you go into it knowing what to expect and bring your appetite it's a great place! The first night we were there we had Andrew as our server, and he was awesome! The second night I unfortunately missed our server's name because I had stepped away when my group was seated, but she was also fantastic! This place will definitely become a staple for good beer and weekend cheat days!
We have been coming to White Oak tavern for a long time and this is the first time I can say the food was terrible.
The chicken sandwich was soggy and greasy. Tried to venture away from the burger (which has now reached $17) and try something else.
Also had a Caesar salad for appetizer, which used to be good. I suspect they aren’t making their own dressing any longer. It was incredibly bland. Reminded me of a grocery store salad bag Caesar salad.
Food was very good. Summer Omelet was a treat. Fried green tomatoes could have used some seasoning. It sounds odd to mention but the ketchup that came with the home fries was nice, they added some smokey barque flavor.
We both did not like the bloody mary but that is because they used old bay in their mix. Had we known we would have asked to do the more traditional version. I'm sure they would have accommodated.
Great food, strong beer selection, tons of outdoor seating
Just had the apps, but 3 apps filled us up. Great beer selection too.
It was a great experience coming back. We have been here before the pandemic. The food has not changed specially the burger. The service is good.
Outside dining was great, we will be back for another meal soon.
Justine was an exceptional server.
Food was outstanding.
Pizza Egg Rolls were a very pleasant surprise.
HAM-Burger was good as always
Summer Risotto we delicious
They had the outside table at the time we requested. The server was available but not pushy, AND he answered our questions and gave helpful comments about the food so that I was very pleased with the food I chose. The weather was good, so this may be a lucky place (:>) I guess. Great Place
Food was delicious. Beers and drinks were great. Service was super. Always a great experience.
First time out since restaurants reopened for on site dining and had a good experience. Felt comfortable with the protocols in place and the food was delicious as usual.
The food was delicious and the service was great !
The best burger in Howard County by far. Service was excellent and the environment was safe and clean.
We had a wonderful time sitting outside on a picnic table under an umbrella. The old Bay fried pickles were incredible as an appetizer! The burgers never disappoint. Wait staff was polite, attentive without being overbearing, and competent. We always enjoy White Oak Tavern.
This was a very enjoyable experience. We will return.
Always great food, cooked perfectly.
Made a last minute reservation here, and was pleasantly surprised at how amazing everything was! The food and drinks were top quality!!! We will be coming back for sure.
I usually get good service but lately the service has not been to good. I waited over 20 min for the waiter to come and acknowledged us.
Sat for almost 30 minutes before a waiter arrived to help us.
Amazing craft beers.
Great food and service. Will be back in the future. Thank you!
Good food, good service and great beer selection
Outstanding Valentine's Day. Service and food were awesome. This is our new go-to place.
A pleasant anniversary dinner with my wife that we both enjoyed. The main course was fine but the dessert and drinks were the stars of the show.
The White Oak Tavern is the Cheers of Ellicott City, Maryland. Friendly service, good selection of draft beers, great food, and humorous clientele!
I had brunch at the White Oak Tavern with a friend. The food was delicious! I had the tofu sandwich, which was so good. I would definitely get it again. The service was great, and the atmosphere was really nice. Definitely will be going there again.
Great service. Delicious food. We had the restaurant week specials. The Sharma chicken tacos outstanding and flavorful. Brussels sprouts could have been cooked more. Duck was perfectly done and the hunter stew was hearty and filling with a rich gravy. Carrot cake moist full of raisins and we would have just split it if the special didn't already include another dessert. Not sure why bowling and boxing were on the tv
Had a wonderful night while dining with White Oak Tavern. The restaurant week menu worked out perfectly and everything was exceptional. Our server, Sadie, made the night even more pleasant! Definitely will be back 😊
Wonderful food. Great music.
